tip: "sherlock (tv)" m/m NOT "sherlock holmes/john watson"
i don't know what i would say but....the current government is not a friend to free speech, to put it mildly. their mandate is fake as hell.
I just explained why I enjoy fanfiction. You don't have to discuss any laws or legal issues, just tell them why writing/reading fanfic is important to you. The legal team will do the legal mumbo-jumbo, but they want first-hand accounts from people who enjoy reading and writing fanfiction so they can present those as examples of how fanfiction benefits people.
that's good advice, thanks!!
